Yes, but with one door eliminated that means there are only

two (I believe that I can still count) so for me that means

that there is only a 1/2 chance of getting the correct door

because there are only two left.

I don't think with 2 doors that one should have the greater

chance of being correct than the one already chosen because

there are only 2. That means one is right, the other is

wrong, so there is a 1/2 chance of getting it right.

A kid sib explaination of this really strange idea would

make me, at least, moderately happy. Ben lowing
